History Made Magic: The Scrapbooks of Harry Houdini Come Alive as Digital Flip Book | Not Even Past

History Made Magic: The Scrapbooks of Harry Houdini Come Alive as Digital Flip Book | Not Even Past | Nonprofit Storytelling | Scoop.it

"In a new age of digital powered skepticism, where anything “extraordinary” can be explained within seconds on a smartphone, there isn’t much room for magic.  But the Harry Ransom Center at UTAustin has brought us back to a time when the mystical unknown captured the hearts and minds of people everywhere.  The HRC acquired the scrapbooks of legendary magician Harry Houdini (1891-1926) in 1958 and has recently digitized its collection for the public.  The collection contains ten scrapbooks filled with advertisements, newspaper clippings, pamphlets, reports, how-to articles, and almost everything else regarding magic from roughly the 1830s through the 1920s.  Houdini owned all the books at the time of his death, but he did not compile all of the clippings.  Four books were owned by his contemporaries, including Harry Helms, Herr Jansen, S.S. Baldwin, and Professeur Em. De Verli (sic) and their books have clippings that span Europe and North America throughout the 19th century.  Some scraps detail the “Revival of the Dread Devil-Worship,” while others document articles, such as “Houdini Tells How the Mediums Know So Much...”
